Cape Town Winelands & Accommodation
Cape Town is South Africa's oldest and most beautiful city. When the Dutch settlers arrived here in the 17th century, they immediately started on their first project planting the Company Gardens to supply food for the ships of the Dutch East India Company. Three hundred years later this garden inspired the Garden at Babylonstoren.
Stellenbosch Winelands & Accommodation
The oak-lined streets of the historic university town of Stellenbosch are a mere 20 minute drive from Babylonstoren. Stellenbosch is also renowned for its wine route, the country's oldest, where handsome Cape Dutch manor houses steeped in history and culture are surrounded by vineyards and scenic mountain ranges.

One of the most picturesque towns in the Western Cape, Franschhoek is close to Babylonstoren and a must-visit destination. Several award-winning wines come from the region surrounding the charming town, which is often referred to as the food and antiques capital of South Africa.
